Do you hear the cry of the poor? Liberation theology today
Though it grew up in Latin America, liberation theology continues to have lessons for the faithful north of the border.
People who think of "liberation theology" as a 1960s fad should get to know Fordham University Professor Michael Lee, one of a new generation of Catholic theologians.
Lee's faith was transformed when he put it to work among the poor after college, and liberation theology gave him a way to think about his experience. Now he uses it to help undergrads understand the connection between faith and the needs of the world.
